    Maybe yours is the cluster version John, actually try using the store function & see if the readings come up mate as that could be the same as the SET button on the 8P where it sets the registered circumference of the wheel when tyres checked, then when abs sensor notices change it warns the car via the cluster, other system is via pressure sensor valves in each wheel & displays remotely via radio signals to the receiver in car & displays on the screen or the DIS, but TPMS on 8P was turned on & off via cluster/abs coding by adding or subtracting a number, 2 8P links to see

    Thanks muchly for that.Will it work for the B8?.Ive just checked mine again and all i get is 'store tyre pressures' in the mmi.I have a feeling it only tells you when somethings wrong, so ill drop some pressure in a tyre or two and see if the bugger wakes up.The manual is of no use either!!

    Nah I reckon you set your tyre pressures to as they should be, then you press the store feature & it then keeps an eye on the pressures or circumference, try it see if it bleeps or something, maybe yours has the abs controlled version but the set button is built into the mmi system instead of a fixed button like 8P mate.

    Anyone seen my sock.................................................
